Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship Programme

Inspiring excellence, all round development and leadership

The Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship Programme educates future leaders at the University of Waikato within the values of New Zealand’s greatest adventurer, Sir Edmund Hillary.  We are all inspired by the view that “Together, we believe the impossible is a summit to be conquered”.

Sir Edmund Hillary Scholars must excel in academia, leadership and sports or creative and performing arts.  Various professional development opportunities and fees support are provided for Scholars.

Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship Programme applications for next are now open.

Applications will close on 1st October of this year.

The Hillary Programme enhances scholar’s success through relationships with regional, national and international partners and sponsors. The Programme that started in 2005 commits to successful Scholars for their period of study at the University of Waikato.
